Prepare your students with an Intro Stats Readiness Bootcamp

Build student readiness and confidence by offering the FREE Intro Stats Readiness Bootcamp in WebAssign.

The Bootcamp contains a formative student assessment on prerequisite topics needed for success in college courses as well as targeted learning modules, step-by-step tutorials, and video remediation for areas where students struggle. For use as a pre-course refresher, start-of-course diagnostic, or even divided by topic for just-in-time support throughout the term.

The assessment will take roughly 1.5 to 2 hours to complete and the remaining time to finish the Bootcamp will depend on how much remediation the student needs.

The Bootcamp prepares students for the computational procedures they are expected to know going into introductory statistics.
